The Thomas Miles Experience serves as our most prominent fundraising series for the Miles of Giving Foundation which supports military veterans. It consists of three days of activities filled with service, awareness, recognition, and celebration for a worthy cause. Event activities include, but are not limited to: a Day of Service with Bastion Community of Resilience, a Women’s Empowerment Brunch, All White Twisted Summer Jam, and of course, the long-awaited Miles of Giving Celebrity Golf Classic event.
Too often we forget that our military is an all-volunteer force. Our men and women in uniform actively choose to be our surrogates in warfare—to fight and defend the rights and freedoms we enjoy every day of our lives.
But with military campaigns in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, and other conflict zones, many of our Warriors are returning with physical and mental injuries. Most embrace a positive outlook and are hailed as decorated heroes. Nevertheless, this new generation of veterans remains saddled with critical needs that overwhelm existing care facilities and oftentimes, devastate their families. That is the situation Miles of Giving wants to help alleviate.
The mission of Miles of Giving is to provide a critical service that directly grants financial assistance to enlisted Veterans and their families. Through direct payments to a veteran, we cut out middlemen and bureaucratic entanglement that often delay services needed by veterans and their caregivers.
We provide assistance, “RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!”
